Licensed Aesthetician &
Skin care specialist
Ivy loves helping people along the path to stronger, healthier skin. Active in the art and science of skin care and laser therapies since 2009, she has worked in both dermatology and plastic surgery offices, successfully treating sun damage, acne, rosacea and sensitive skin.
After graduating from the University of Georgia with an honors degree in Fine Arts, she worked in ceramic arts and landscape design for 20 years. From this experience, she realized as important as it is in the garden to create a healthy environment and balanced soil for plant growth, it is just as essential in skin care to create a nutrient-rich environment inside and out. Her results-driven therapeutic approach is 4-fold: diet, exercise, a daily skin routine with well-formulated products, and advanced skin treatments.
Certified in Medical Needling and Chemical Exfoliation, as well as Laser Physics and Safety, Ivy has enjoyed providing a wide range of services over the years, including Microneedling, Dermaplaning, Peels, Medical and Holistic facials. She has cultivated a deep understanding of cosmeceutical chemistry and has been called a “Peel Wizard” by her peers.
Learning and growing in the field of aesthetics is her passion. She continues to study ingredients and formulation, as well as the latest in light therapies and aesthetic devices. With website she hopes to share her on-going exploration in skin care. Her mission is to help you discover the holistic and pharmaceutical-grade products and treatments that work best for your unique skin health.
Ivy is privileged to be a part of the creation of New Orchard Wellness, a center for acupuncture and holistic skin care in Durham, North Carolina. You can learn more, or book an in-person appointment for a personalized skin wellness plan at neworchardwellness.com
